My doctor suggested that I try to take both of these medications together while I wait for approval for IVIG (hopefully). I have been on each separately and neither have stopped the progression. I have never heard of anyone taking both and thought I would run it by y'all and see what you know.
Thanks for all your help.

Heather,
I've never taken MTX and cellcept at the same time, but I have taken MTX and IVIg and now I take cellcept and IVIg. Are you already at maximum dosage (25mg/wk) on the MTX? Are you doing injections or pill? I found the injections worked SO much better than the pills.

You might also consult a pharmacist about this.
